Superb villa holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in villa Borboleta and we were a bit worried that we were making a mistake going back to the same place for a second year running but it was even better second time round and we enjoyed our holiday even more. The villa is fabulous - beautifully decorated throughout and extremely good facilities. We especially loved the fact that each bedroom has its own bathroom and there is even a spare one downstairs which is really useful for during the day. Both the lounge and the kitchen give access to the pool area which is where we spent most of the day just lounging around. There are plenty of comfortable sunbeds and a large table and chairs for eating al fresco and the pool is surrounded by the lawn and completely enclosed by some beautiful flowering plants and hedges - we loved the privacy it offered. If you fancy venturing out then you can easily walk to the strip at Prara d'Oura where there are loads of bars and restaurants but quite busy so nice to come back to the calm of the villa too. Quinta da balaia has its own reception and there is also a communal pool area with restaurant and a small but well equipped supermarket within a 5 minute walk.

Carlos dealt with our booking on both occasions and he has been so helpful, even arranging a car for us and transfers to and from the airport. I honestly cannot recommend this villa enough nor the service we received from Carlos who has always been on hand anytime we've needed him.

Would we go back again for a third time ? Yes, absolutely !!!!

Stunning Villa In a Well Cared For Complex

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had an easier booking from start to finish Carlos was more than happy to help with any questions we had , and the taxi service is a must we used it several times to go to the old town or a 15 minute stroll gets you to the livelier strip (senor frogs went down a treat if you like pizzas). The villa is absolutely lovely inside and out and with having a two year old with us the gated grounds were perfect. if we return to Portugal in the future we will certainly return to villa Barboleta or one of the other villas available.

We felt like millionaires for a week !!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was amazing and was well equipped and clean. The pool was private and the outside terrace you could relax in your surroundings, but if you fancied a change, restaurants ,bars, supermarkets and shops were just 15-20 min walk away so the location was the best of both. Our family holiday, first time staying in a villa, I would highly recommend it to families, I'm looking forward to booking for next year. Our children were aged 7 and 10, they loved the pool and we felt safe and secure. We could also recommend Zoomarine and slide and splash. The manager Carlos was fabulous and his customer service was outstanding. Also we chose to use the designated chauffeur service for our days out, and I would highly recommend this service as their service was fantastic and flexible which helps when you have tired children. Overall a fabulous villa and holiday we wont forget.

Lovely stay at Villa Borboleta

  • 4 of 5

This was our family's 3rd visit (a party of 6 adults) to Quinta da Balaia & staying in a villa owned by José Carlos. This time we stayed at Villa Borboleta between 8th & 15th October 2016. We found the villa to be well equipped & suited our needs. It has a large comfortable living/dining area, a serviceable kitchen complete with dishwasher, washing machine & small kitchen appliances & 3 large double bedrooms all with en-suite facilities. The villa was maintained well & the pool area was also well looked after with room for al fresco dining, ample room with 6 loungers for sunbathing & cooling off in the pool. The pool was cleaned twice during our stay & housekeeping called once in mid-week. The washing machine was very handy as we were able to launder our towels & clothes when required, letting them dry in the warm Algarve sunshine. On the night we arrived we couldn't get into the safe, however, following a phone call to Carlos the problem was rectified the next morning when Carlos himself arrived & sorted the issue. We also had difficulty with the downstairs WC but again this problem was rectified very quickly by Carlos. The only drawback was needing taxis into Albufeira so would recommend car hire if you intend to get out & about much during your stay. All the financial transactions were completed easily & in a timely manner & the villa safety deposit was refunded inside 2 days of our return home. All in all we had a good stay in the villa & would certainly recommend it. We will be contacting Carlos again when we next visit the Algarve! The Kenny Family, Northern Ireland. Obrigado Carlos!
